I have never been a patient person. If I decide I want something then I want it right away, but with gaming this doesn't happen.
Devs tell us about future games months (sometimes years) in advance. And we have to sit it out and wait for that release date before we can get our hands on that shiny new disc. In recent years things have got a lot worse for those waiting for games due to the proliferation of the internet. Now we get drip fed hype from announcement all the way to release. Then there is TC who collates all the hype and brings it all together in chat. Now the Impending release of the next generation of consoles has compounded the problem further.
I am now at the point where I am set to explode and we are still 3 months away from getting our hands on those new consoles. I'm hoping the release of GTAV in 3 weeks time will provide sufficient distraction.
So how does everyone else deal with living on the hype train?
